US police in New York City have detained four teenagers and are seeking a fifth after a woman was gang raped at a playground.

The father and his 18 year old daughter were drinking a beer on the playground in Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighbourhood when the teenagers approached them and forced the father to flee at gunpoint, an unnamed police official told the New York Times.

The father ran for help, but the suspects had fled by the time two police officers arrived at the scene late on Thursday night.

The suspects include a 14-year-old, a 17-year-old and two 15-year-olds.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) said two of the suspects surrendered and two were arrested by police.
